I saw your 2nd pair on the Bay ... kudos on profiting from J. Crew's pricing error!
Of course, I'd be singing a different tune if you were unloading my size.
Thank you for your response.
So you are saying that time heals all wounds?
Is that unusual for the Tanker to be on Trubalance? Not my taste anyway, but I thought it was usually on Barrie or Aberdeen.
Looks like they've got a Barrie Color 8 Indy boot. If I was looking for a shell Indy boot, that sounds like a one to get.
I had an extra set of holes added.
I like your new perf cap toes, but the BB PTB is hands down the better all-around shoe. Not sure I can think of a setting where I would prefer to go with the j crew over the BB. But that's just me. I'm sure it will be a great shoe to add to your rotation. Congrats and wear in great health my friend...
I've been staring at them both for the last couple of hours. While they definitely have similarities, each has its own unique qualities that set them apart. Sorta like comparing a PTB to a chukka, similar, yet different.
I agree although someone a couple of months ago here posted in no uncertain terms that they had Cigar Indy Boots on the Barrie at the SF Alden location, so maybe it's true.
Just posting to confirm that the Cordovan #8 Indy they offer is indeed on the Barrie last. The SA (Robert) definitively told me they were when I asked him and the 8.5 D I picked up fit just like the other 8.5 D Barrie boots I have. I also compared them pretty extensively to my other Barries to make sure and they are the same.
I have not tried on the tanker nor have I asked about it, so I can not shed any light on that particular make-up.
